Ferrari F2007 - cooling detail 24 August 2007

Istanbul is well known for its high temperatures and many teams increase the cooling capabilities of their cars here to prevent reliability issues. This is not the case on the Ferrari, as the multiple cooling gill system introduced earlier in the season is already more than efficient enough to cope. This is because the system's clean design means the hot air from the angled radiators in the sidepods does not face any obstructions as it exits the bodywork (blue arrow) via the 15 gills (per side) and flows freely towards the rear of the car.
